Home Inspector Disciplines - 2007

The following are summaries of recent disciplines regarding home inspector licenses. These are only summaries of the disciplines. For brevity, the summaries may not include all of the facts upon which a discipline was based, or all of the specific conditions of discipline. Accordingly, these summaries should not be relied upon as a comprehensive statement of the discipline in a given case, nor should they be exclusively relied upon as precedent as to how similar cases may be handled.

NOTE: Disciplines regarding home inspector licenses include. (1) reprimand (2) probation for a period with various possible conditions, (3) suspension for a period (this kind of suspension allows for restoration of the license at the end of the suspension period without the requirement that the licensee file a Petition for Restoration), (4) indefinite suspension for a period (this kind of suspension requires that the licensee file a Petition for Restoration, no earlier than at the end of the indefinite suspension period, to gain restoration of the license), (5) revocation, (6) termination, (7) refusal to renew a license, and (8) in the case of applicants, refusal to issue a license.
